Only PS5 is powerful enough to run the new Final Fantasy game

AN INTERVIEW with top executives working on Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has revealed the reasons why the second part of the remake will only be available on PlayStation 5.

Although the first part of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released for PlayStation 4, Square Enix has announced that the second part, officially named Rebirth, will be exclusive to PS5.

The reason for this is that the developers believe that the last generation console is not powerful enough to load the much larger world of Rebirth.

In an interview with the Japanese website playerproducer Yoshinori Kitase revealed that only the PS5, with its significantly improved specs, is powerful enough to prevent loading bottlenecks.

As translated by GLHF:

“The quality of the graphics is the same [as Remake] but the PS5 has faster access to the SSD [console’s memory].

“If you played the first part of the story, you will know that after escaping Midgar, Rebirth enters a huge world.

“As Rebirth takes place in an expanding world, the stress of loading could create a bottleneck.

“In order to play Rebirth smoothly, we felt the specs of the PS5 were necessary.”

In the same interview, Mariko Sato, producer of the upcoming Crisis Core remake FF7 Reunion, also revealed more about the upcoming release.

Originally released for the PSP, the trailer revealed some of the story elements as well as graphics consistent with the main FF7 remake.

However, Sato is reluctant to call it a remake despite the game’s complete overhaul. She revealed:

“Crisis Core FF7 Reunion faithfully recreates the story of the original game. We also left the interface and core game as is.

“Because of that, we’re developing the game with the idea that it’s more of a remaster than a remake.”

Reunion is due out later this year, although no exact date has been announced yet.

Unlike Rebirth, it will be available on less powerful consoles.

Besides PS5, it will also be available for PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC and even Nintendo Switch.
